Jason Reitman is preparing Ghostbusters 3, something that came out of the blue.
And this week Reitman appeared on Bill Burr’s Monday Morning podcast and said some comments about his plans for the franchise. Reitman says:
“I’m not making the ‘Juno’ of ‘Ghostbusters’ movies. This is going to be a love letter to ‘Ghostbusters’. I love this franchise. I grew up watching it. I consider myself the first ‘Ghostbusters’ fan. I was like seven years old when that movie came out and I love it. I want to make a movie for my fellow ‘Ghostbusters’ fans.”
He also discussed the work that went into creating that short teaser released earlier this year:
“We went back to the work files for the sound of the proton pack. And we went back to the stems of Elmer Berstein’s score. Just for where it says, in the teaser, ‘Summer 2020,’ we went back and found the original physical vinyl letters they used to create the ‘Ghostbusters’ poster in 1984. Rescanned them and then our titles guys reprinted them. We filmed the titles. Not like in a computer. We shot physical titles with a light and smoke effect because that’s how they would have done it back in the day. We are, in every way, trying to go back to the original technique and hand the movie back to the fans”
Supposedly, there has been ‘backlash’ online for these comments. Can’t think from who, or why…
